Butternut Squash Soup Recipe


1 large fresh squash

1 red bell pepper, chopped

1 medium yellow onion, chopped

3 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled

7 cups water

1 tablespoon salt

2 tablespoons sugar


1/2 cup heavy cream Fresh thyme sprigs, for garnish (optional)


1. Combine all of the ingredients except for the heavy cream in a large soup pot. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 35 minutes.

2. Using a hand-held immersion blender, purée the soup until silky smooth. (Alternatively, cool the soup slightly, then purée in a blender in batches, making sure to leave the hole in the lid open to allow the steam to escape.)

3. Stir in the heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Taste and adjust seasoning (depending on the sweetness of the vegetables, you may need up to a tablespoon more sugar).

4. Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with fresh chopped thyme or thyme sprigs, if desired.

    This sounds delicious. I’ve just bought some squash so I’ll be making this, I may have to add a few chilli flakes to my bowl though

    I love soups! We made a pumpkin soup just the other day. I must say that butternut squash is my favourite though. I also add some sweetcorn in with mine.

    Thanks so much for sharing with #MMBC. Hope to see you next week x
